The Bengals are set for arguably their toughest game of the 2020 season, as they’ll travel to Pittsburgh for a clash with the 8-0 Steelers.

Thankfully, Cincinnati is coming off a much-needed bye week, and they also got more time to prepare for Pittsburgh, who is coming off a comeback win over the Cowboys in Dallas.

And fan confidence in the Bengals remains high, as 72% of fans are happy with the direction of the franchise, down just 2% from last week.

Perhaps the 2% drop stems with the Bengals being severely undermanned this week, as Geno Atkins, Darius Phillips and LeShaun Sims will be out for what’s already been a struggling defense going against a high-powered Steelers offense.

The Bengals offense will also be without star running back Joe Mixon, so there’s no question winning at Pittsburgh will be a major challenge this week.

Despite the tough odds Cincinnati is facing, fans remain confident in Joe Burrow following his big game vs. the Titans.
